Foods to Avoid if You Have Gout

Gout is one of the most painful types of arthritis that many people are suffering from today. This can affect all the joints but most specifically the joints in our feet. This disorder is brought about by the crystallization and build up of uric acid in the joints.
While genetic is the main reason for the occurrence of gout, making some changes in your lifestyle can help you to manage the pain. With that in mind, here are some of the foods that you must avoid if you have gout:

1. Meats


Organ meats such as liver, kidneys, tongue, brain and tripe contains the highest amount of purines. Because of this, this type of meats should be avoided completely. On the other hand, you must eat pork, beef, chicken, duck, goose and other animal meats in moderation. In addition to that, you must also shy away from consuming animal-based dishes like soups and gravy.
